## Homework Statement

x^4 + x^3 + 2x - 4 = 0

## Homework Equations

N/A

## The Attempt at a Solution

x^4 + x^3 + 2x - 4 = 0

x(x^3 + x^2 +2) = 4

i don't know what to do with this. i tried to factor (x^3 + x^2 +2), but i don't know how. I also have a feeling that I am not doing this correctly and that there should be a zero instead of a 4 on the right hand side of the equal sign...
